Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

israeliflag1

For decades, Israel has literally gotten away with murder. Crimes of war and against humanity repeat regularly. Human and civil rights are spurned.

Anyone not experiencing it firsthand can’t imagine the ruthlessness of occupation harshness. Besieged Gazans suffer most. For over five years, they’ve been lawlessly isolated and suffocated.

Former Ariel Sharon associate, Dov Weissglass, once said, “The idea is to put Palestinians on a diet, but not make them die of hunger.” In other words, make them suffer. Francis Boyle, Ilan Pappe, this writer, and others call it slow-motion genocide.

Call it anything you like but understand what’s going on. Why else would activists risk life and limb to help. No one pays them. They’re given nothing in return. They’re involved because it’s important to help.

They’re true heroes. Only friends, family, and supporters know them. Media scoundrels ignore them…

October 26, 2012WARFAREBoeing successfully tests a new missile that can take out electronic targets with little collateral damage. The aerospace company tested the microwave missile last week on a two-story building on the Utah Test and Training Range where computers and electronic systems were turned on to gauge the effects of the missile’s radio waves, according to a Boeing press release. The missile, known as CHAMP (Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project), fired a burst of High Powered Microwaves at the building, successfully knocking out the electronic systems and computers, and even taking out the television cameras recording the test. “This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare,” Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works, said in the press release. “In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or…

October 26, 2012KURIL ISLANDS The Kuril Island volcano named Alaid, in Russia’s Far East has begun spewing ash with the giant ash cloud rising to an altitude of up to 700 meters. The Alaid Volcano is the tallest and northernmost volcano in the islands, with a crater which is approximately 1.5-km-wide. The first signs of activity were recorded on October 7th when thermal anomalies were observed a cloud of steam appeared. Volcanologists are issuing warnings regarding the likelihood of an eruption of ash emissions which may reach a height of 10-15 kilometers above sea level. The volcano last erupted in 1996. –Voice of Russia

October 26, 2012 LOUISIANAA sharp tremor was recorded by USGS monitors just after 9 p.m. Wednesday at the site of the giant Louisiana sinkhole in Assumption Parish. The giant sinkhole appeared in August near the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou areas. The Assumption Parish Police Jury says the tremor was large enough that the body wave phases could easily be identified. A body wave travels through the interior of the earth. The preliminary location of the tremor was just SE of Oxy #3 cavern at a depth of 500m.  There is no additional information specific to this seismic activity at this time. The sinkhole is now about four acres in size. Residents were forced from their homes on August third, two months after the bayous started bubbling. They are still evacuated from their homes. –WAFB

October 26, 2012ICELANDIcelandic authorities warned people in the north of the island on Thursday to prepare for a possible big earthquake after the biggest tremors in the area for 20 years. The north Atlantic island, where almost 320,000 people live, is a hotspot of volcanic and seismic activity as it straddles a fault in the earth’s surface. The Civil Protection Department said in a statement that recent small quakes in an area under the sea about 20 km (12 miles) off the north of Iceland had prompted it to issue a warning to local people. It said such shocks, one of which was a magnitude 5.6, often led to stronger quakes. Warnings were issued when there were grounds to expect a natural or manmade event that could threaten health and human safety, it added. “People are anxious because they don’t know what might happen,” said Amundi…
